Insane winds JFK airport makes F22 hover like a heli.
This is the 2nd coolest thing I have seen today
I’m curious what the first coolest thing was :)
The inside of my fridge.
How were you able to get a wind speed that high? When I max out the slider it is like 97kts? (I’m guessing a possible answer, but don’t know if it’s true)
Idk. I started on expert server and then maybe the wind settings got transfered to solo flight.
That’s the only answer I could think of.
Yes, it definitely does get transferred. But I never thought about a speed like yours where it is higher than the wind slider max in solo. So, guess if you were to change the slider, you’d lose the high value that gets transferred.
So, you left expert at a high altitude with a big wind?
This made me wonder about the highest winds reported in the forum. AI claims the following:
- Highlander241 captured a screenshot of winds just over Chicago O’Hare International Airport (KORD), where they experienced 180 knots of tailwind1.
- AndrewWu3 encountered a weather bug that resulted in 210-knot winds at FL1001.
- Toby1724 faced headwinds of about 185 knots while flying from Sydney to Auckland1.
- GameBoy_KIRB9 encountered 143 knots over Nepal and China1.
- Butter_Boi once experienced 210 knots (although no exact photo exists) and humorously noted that if their Cessna Citation could float, the winds were indeed strong1.
- First_Officer_Lee reminisced about 300-knot winds that caused their CRJ to slide off the runway1.
- Luke_King-kong19 dealt with a 120-knot crosswind over the Atlantic
(Some of those numbers seem more like another planet.)
Hold on… This might be it. The last time I was on expert mode on C17 going 44000ft, lost control and nose dived like crazy so I exited game right then.
So after waking up I wanted to play IF again. Spawned solo on F22. I spawned in upside down lol so yeah
Yeah, that sounds like what happened. Interesting.
This makes me wanna ask for VTOL aircraft
They should make teh F-35A, F-35B, F-35C jet in my opinion they should add it doesnt everyone
